jose melendez said:Seriously, how can Callhan be in favor of Sterling being suspend and losing his team? Under that rationale, he and Dennis should have been off the air years ago.
I think it's completely plausible that Callahan is more hate filled than Sterling.
I heard some of this. It was interesting that the actual circumstances in why he left EEI were revealed for the first time.Vandalman said:Jon Meterperel was back as a guest host this morning. From what little I heard it doesn't sound like his radio career has flourished since leaving 'EEI.
Interesting to hear Jon Meterparel on the WEEI morning show today with Callahan and Minihane. It was his first appearance on the station since departing in October 2012. He’s had a stint at Boston Herald radio, he’s been on the Big Show Unfiltered, tried his own podcast on jonmeterparel.com/. He’s done Pawtucket Red Sox games and continued his work on Boston College football and basketball radio broadcasts.
Meter went into see the boss as his contract was running out...told him he was thinking about leaving the show. Meter said the boss (who I assume was Jeff Brown) said nothing. Remained silent. Had no response at all. Then later on he learned if he wanted to stay he would have to take a pay cut.Rusty13 said:Can you elaborate on what he revealed about the circumstances of him leaving the show?
Howard Simons: Isn't that what you expect them to say?Chad Finn said:I'll never forget, in the day or so after Meter left, Callahan went on the air and said, "It's not about money, don't believe it if you read it's about money." I hadn't written ANYTHING about it being about money at that point. He was preemptively claiming something I HADN'T written was wrong.

Byrdbrain said:I don't think Manny was the right choice to do the pitch, I would have preferred Schilling if he was physically able and if not Pedro. I think a reasonable argument can be had over this issue but they aren't having it.
One thing I would comment on regarding the posts above is from what I have heard Dennis(who I can't stand) seems willing to give Manny some slack it's Callahan who is really pushing the issue.
I disagree with the last part on Dennis. While i was listening, Dennis was trying to make a comparison that the Red Sox allowing Manny to take part in the anniversary and throw out the first pitch would be like the Yankee's doing the same with Arod in the future. His point being that Manny is as hated by the Sox fans as Arod is by Yankee fans, which cannot be further from the truth. With Manny, its more of a media hatred than a fan base hatred.
Patriot_Reign said:last week while dennis was on vacation someone made a comment about dennis being an ironman and yet never having to have had major surgery
to which either kirk or gerry (i forget) said "well not exactly" and they all guffaw'ed loudly at their little inside joke about dennis having gone through the lap band surgery to correct his grossly obese problem
Well the WS was a romp and several people could have been named MVP(I think Foulke should have been).mrsbeasley said:Edited to keep relatively on topic:
If the MVP for the 2004 World Series isn’t the right person to throw out the pitch at a ceremony celebrating the 2004 World Series team then no one is.
CantKeepmedown said:I only listened for about 15 minutes, but there were multiple:
"He never visited the kids at Spring Training!"
"He embarassed himself with PED's"
"He quit on his teammates"
"He always be an A-hole"
Dennis said that he hopes somebody will constantly remind Manny that he refused to visit the kids at Spring Training. Even if Manny has found Jesus, once an A-hole, always an A-hole.
How do you live life being such miserable human beings all the time?
"I don't think Manny can read a children's book. You expect me to believe he is reading the New Testament?"
That was from Callahan yesterday and the Manny bashing continues today.
I will say that the bit where Minihane is calling out callers for sucking out loud is good. If the result of that is the actual banning of "celebrity" callers like Tony from Bridgewater, that might make these shows 5, maybe 10% more listenable.
Hasn't the story been his surgery was a hip replacement?
Clearly not true.ForKeeps said:According to Gerry, Alex Hassan was called up to "save" the outfield offense. He's actually taking joy in calling a local kid, a replacement level guy called up purely due to injury, the "worst baseball player ever" after one awful night. Oh, and Stephen Drew is still Hitler in case you were wondering.
I really hope the medium of sports radio becomes extinct in my lifetime.
ForKeeps said:You must also think people who rubberneck at car accidents are fans of vehicular homicide.
Dude, you said you hope sports radio becomes extinct in your lifetime. Really? You obviously listen to lots and lots and lots of it, every day, so I'd say the last thing you want is for it to go away. You love it. You love getting all honked off so you can come in here and throw some snark around about it. Hey, if that's what gets you off, all the power to you, but at least be honest about it and drop the "it's so beneath me," crap.ForKeeps said:Right, and all those people who rubberneck at car accidents are fans of vehicular homicide.
See that statement I can believe in and actually support. Andrew's statement is alot different tham ForKeeps' statement. I would only add Felger and Mazz to that list of "negative nelly " hosts.Andrew said:I hope the type of "sports" "talk" D&C provide is extinct in my lifetime...
